I blame the lack of formatting for my misunderstanding :P

I thought he was talking about simunitions for the weekend crowd given how cheap they are compared to FS.

That being said, I'd be surprised if simunitions had only an 'effective range' of 100ft if it's used in the same context as how we use the same phrase. The website says the 5.56 variant is "tactically accurate with ball cartridges to 100 feet" which leads me to believe they have roughly the same point of impact at that distance. FS rounds have great range capabilities but, due to their relatively low FPS (when compared to something like a simunition or even an airgun), they don't have a flat trajectory for very long at all.
